„Wiederaufbau“ auf rechtlicher Ebene: Die Behandlung der Frage der Weitergeltung des Konkordats seit dem Jahr 1945 unter besonderer Berücksichtigung des Vermögensvertrages von 1960
The legal position of the Catholic Church in Austria is mainly ruled by the 1933/34 Concordat and by supplementary agreements concluded after the end of the National Socialist regime. One supplementary agreement ist the Treaty concerning the estate of the Catholic Church, which was concluded in 1960. The article shows the history of the origins of the 1933/34 Concordat, which was finalised under a newly established autoritarian regime, the fortune of this treaty during times of National Socialism and the discussions about it’s validity. Then the origins of the treaty of 1960 are analysed and there is asked if the legal position of the Catholic Church in Austria is compatible with the rule of equality respectively the principle of religious neutrality.
